Comments about Badlands
Below are readers' comments about "Badlands":
Pyraine, November 2010:
Fished yesterday at Fuselight-by-the-Sea, a new encampment on the far east shore of Badlands. I fished directly off the end of the fishing pier. Base fishing level was 210 (at start) with a +20 pole and a +75 lure, equaling a 305 total skill level.
In 10 minutes I caught the following:
13 Spotted Yellowtail
5 Stonescale Eels
5 Big Mouth Clams
5 Firefin Snapper
4 Rockscale Cod
4 Winter Squid (seasonal alternate to Raw Summer Bass, I think)
1 Glossy Mightfish
After fishing a while longer, both with and without the lure, I was having a similar catch rate. With the exception of about 4 casts that yielded nothing at all. Caught no junk.
Also, a couple of days ago, caught several stacks of Raw Redgill in the waters in E. Plaguelands.
